No idea about the science behind it but I have a pull-up bar in my home office and it feels amazing to just dead hang off of it every now and then.

I found it a bit uncomfortable at first, but not painful.  I'm up to where I can do 30 second hangs at a time.  2 minutes of this (4 x 30 seconds) every other day or so would be a very easy regimen and keep the shoulder stretched.

I tore something I believe in my shoulder last summer playing tennis.  Some pain at leisure. Only hurts when playing when serving or on an overhead.  Any hoo I thought being laid up from playing tennis with my hand surgery might help but after a couple weeks actually feels worse. Have been trying to get back into stretching so maybe that will help some for the oain at night when I sleep on that side?  Maybe hanging from a bar would help also. 

It’s a nag getting old but beats the alternative.

Bar hanging can be almost miraculous for shoulder pain. But start easy. Especially since you're an old fart. (Like me.)

Phrases I'm beginning to hate: "Shoulder / neck impingement," "felt something in his elbow area," "shoulder soreness," "shut down for a few days," "awaiting the results of an MRI," ...

Another phrase I'm beginning to hate: “A little concerning,” manager Dave Martinez said of the injury.

Chad Kuhl gets Cavaill's spot per Davey.

So: Gore, Gray, Corbin, Williams, Kuhl

This is going to be a long season.

1) Passive hanging does wonders for the back as well.
2) I would be upset about Arano getting shut down except I don't have a clue who he is.
3) Will Matt Adams make the squad?

Abrams taking it easy dealing with back soreness.  May G-d have mercy on his soul.

Quote
Abrams has been dealing with some tightness in his back since Tuesday, when he last played in a game against the Mets in Port St. Lucie. Both he and manager Dave Martinez downplayed any concern about the situation, saying that Abrams could play if needed. The 22-year-old Abrams is expected to participate in some baseball activities, including taking some swings, on Friday.

“We don’t want this to be a bigger issue,” Martinez said on Friday. “So give him a few days, let him kind of recover a little bit and then he’ll probably do some baseball activity today and then we’ll get him back out there.”

Oh, same thread noted 2 weeks ago (3/3) that Tetrault was throwing but not yet off the mound, and he was expected to throw off the mound sometime in the next 2 weeks. Haven't heard an update. No news on Brzykcy, who 3 weeks ago was shut down due to forearm strain.  At the time, they estimated 2-4 weeks.

I heard a theory on Sports Radio that the new pitch clock can be detrimental to pitchers!  You’re throwing high velocity pitches and have very little time for your arm to rest before the next pitch!  It was predicted that this would result in pitchers barely lasting the required 5 innings before they are pulled!  Relying more on relievers!  Fewer complete games, much less than lasting 7 innings! 

It makes sense to me!  Could lead to more injuries too!

No time to recover from the recoil!

Btw I counted 17 pitchers on the 2023 injured list BEFORE CADE got hurt!

You would think they would have had injury data from experiments in the minors, but it may be that younger pitchers are more resilient.

a little bit of news here from dougherty. His informed speculation on who starts the year on the 60 day IL.  These IL'ed guys would open slots on the 40 man roster for Kuhl etc... who will need to be added.

Victor Arano’s shoulder impingement is expected to land him on the 60-day injured list alongside Cavalli (Tommy John recovery), Tanner Rainey (TJ recovery) and Stephen Strasburg (continued complications from surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome), according to a person familiar with the situation.

Injuries and WBC were the two biggest reasons I felt they should have waited to implement at the big league level

April 1: LF Corey Dickerson exits game with left calf issue
Dickerson will undergo a scan on Sunday after he exited Saturday’s game against the Braves at the conclusion of the seventh inning. Manager Dave Martinez said Dickerson’s left calf “tightened up on him.” Ildemaro Vargas replaced Dickerson in left field. If the Nationals need to call up another outfielder, one option is Stone Garrett, who is on the 40-man roster and in Triple-A Rochester.

CALSGR8, I think you just set the WNFF record for most sentences in a post that all ended with exclamation points!    Amazing!  9 in a row!  Got to stop, I'm exhausted!

I did not realize it, but Pineda is stashed on the MLB 10 day IL. I guess it defers burning an option? 

He's resumed all baseball activities except hitting as he recovers from a displaced tip of his right pinkie caused by an HBP.

Dickerson went on the road trip and has resumed light hitting as recovers from a calf strain.  I guess as a long time Rockie, he probably is enjoying the trip

with Vargas and Chavis, no need to IL him right away and call up a replacement.

Well, I suppose you hold Garcia out one more day then play him vs. the Pirates. OTOH, Canning is a bit of a fly ball pitcher and a righty, so maybe he's a good match for Garcia.
